the reason I love Twitter.  
And thanks to flying_colours for directing me there.

Stephen King is apparently writing another Dark Tower novel set in between books IV and V.

Be right back, FLAILING LIKE A MAD THING. SERIOUSLY. I'M FORGETTING I EVER HATED THE LAST PART OF THE LAST BOOK.

So. He publishes a book each year. If it's next year's one someone will hear my squeeing in Antarctica.

I MEAN, ANOTHER DT SET IN BETWEEN FOUR AND FIVE WHICH MEANS IT'S ALL MY FAVORITE PEOPLE. And MORE EDDIE DEAN IN MY LIFE WHEN I THOUGHT I WOULDN'T GET ANY MORE. And I miss them all and MY FOREVER SHIP, DAMMIT. My forever fandom, dammit. *sniff*

I'm currently a happy camper.

Sorry for the interruption. Back writing. I might actually accomplish something today if I keep on not being distracted by awesome news.

Jesus, YES.

Seems like I'm still obsessed with it as I was years ago. Well. Good for me.

I would seriously have fallen off my chair had I not been positioned just so that it was impossible.

*proceeds to fall over flailing*

That's SO my favorite timeline too. Ha, well, I love II too actually but that frame, dammit. AND IT MEANS MORE EDDIE! Yeah, well, my mind has just one track apparently. ;) ;) <3333

Remind me what the gap between books 4&5 was, it's been so long since I read them! I really really hope that it's got a lot more Eddie in it - at first I thought it was gonna talk more about young Roland, Cuthbert and Alain, which would be good too but Eddie Dean is my absolute favorite!

Must re-read the series now.
the female ghost of tom joad: dark tower roland/eddiejanie_tangerine on November 11th, 2009 07:21 pm (UTC)
Well 4th finished when they were back on the Beam after sort of telling Flagg to fuck off and then the 5th started right when they arrived at the Calla area, so I guess he has this gap to fill between that and the arrival there... WHICH IS TOTALLY FINE IN MY BOOK. And yeah, I ♥ the old ka-tet and I'd love it if he had a book just for them, BUT BETWEEN 4 AND 5 MEANS MORE EDDIE AND JUST, YES. THAT.

OMFG WHAT DOES THIS MEAN I'M GOING TO HAVE MORE ROLAND DESCHAIN IN MY LIFE?
I hated Wolves of Calla (or whatever the original title is), but I loved so much the 4th one, I'm hurting myself right now for HOW MUCH I WANT TO READ IT. FUCK.

AND EDDIE AND SUSAN AND JAKE I LOVE THEM ALL SO MUCH OMG.
the female ghost of tom joad: dark tower roland/eddiejanie_tangerine on November 11th, 2009 11:12 pm (UTC)
OMG YOU LIKE DARK TOWER TOO? CAN I MARRY YOU? I DIDN'T KNOW YOU LIKED IT TOO! THOUGH WELL, MORE POINTS FOR YOU IN AWESOMENESS. ;) AND YEAH YOU'RE GETTING MORE ROLAND DESCHAIN AND I'M GETTING MORE EDDIE, WHAT ABOUT THAT? ;)

I kind of liked them all except the last half of the last book but OH GOD THE 4TH IT WAS SO GOOD. EVEN IF MY FAVORITE IS THE THIRD. <3333
thandiethandie on November 11th, 2009 11:47 pm (UTC)
I think I was in love with the first book mostly, because of the Jake&Roland odd touching relationship, it was just one of the most moving things I've ever read in all my life, and I had all Martin's last speech memorized, just fucking GENIUS.
And the second book was super awesome because of the doors, and the creepy woman of the many personalities that merged into Susan and Eddie fucking Dean which is a MONSTER OF PATHETIC NEEDY AWESOMENESS and I think if I had known what slash was when I read DT the first time I would have slashed Roland/Eddie like WOA.
And the 3th book was the one with the Mono and the riddles and the vectors' guardians (I think) and Eddie's development and it was SO cool I'm getting goosebumps.
And then obviously the 4th was the one with the flashbacks and Cort and David (the hawk) and the chilling fight, and Roland who isn't good at solving riddles because his mind is too direct and slow but relentless and STUFF OMG I'M SORRY I KNOW THESE BOOKS ALL BY HEART. *weeping in joy*

WHAT? DON'T SAY SORRY. I KNOW THAT STUFF BY HEART TOO, MY PAPERBACKS ARE ALL UNDERLINED LIKE WOAH.

The Jake & Roland relationship is so beautiful. I loved them in that. AND THE SPEECH AT THE END, YESSS. GOD I LOVE THAT BOOK.

And ha. Hi. Meet the girl with the most utter pathetic and needy crush on Eddie that could be. That guy is my favorite literary character in existence, I have so much love for him seriously.

I had known what slash was when I read DT the first time I would have slashed Roland/Eddie like WOA.

THAT'S MY OTP OF OTPS. *HIGH FIVE*

The third book is SO MY FAVORITE ONE. I LOVE THAT FIERCELY OH MY. And yeah it was the one with the vectors' guardian and the Mono and just it was so good AND THE FOURTH'S FLASHBACKS YES. And Cuthbert. And Alain. Arrrgh I LOVE THEM SO FUCKING MUCH. <3333333333333333333
thandiethandie on November 12th, 2009 12:14 am (UTC)
Oh I'm so happy to meet you, I wish I had known about you when I was reading them and no one knew about them :(((

But god, that series is a masterpiece, and leaking stuff on all SK's other books, and it's so awesome that I think I'll need to reread all of it.

I think my main crush was on Roland, because come on...it was like reading a book with young Clint Eastwood, SO COOL. And then there was Eddie and his weird loyalty to the gunslinger, and the bickering and the teaching and the fights, oh god it was epic.
Best characters EVER, all of them.

PS: I might have flailed on my lj about that D/C fusion, do you mind? :/ Maybe someone else will write it for us, while we are waiting for YOU to write it too? I'm the only one that isn't supposed to do anything but WAIT here, my life is easy and hard at the same time :P
the female ghost of tom joad: dark tower roland/eddiejanie_tangerine on November 12th, 2009 12:18 am (UTC)
HA, FLAIL ALL YOU WANT. If someone wants to do it I'm more than up for it, also because I need it to exist. If I can't manage and someone else wants to write it I'LL BE GLAD TO READ IT AND FLAIL AS IS SHOULD BE.

;)

AND I SO AMO TOO. Really, DT people are so few. Which is a pity because it's just awesome. :///

And yeah, that. I need to re-read it too even if I kind of know at least two and three by hear. I ♥ it so much, dammit.

And ha, Roland is AWESOME. Actually I love Clint so in theory he should have been my favorite, but then Eddie came by and I was like 'OMG I LOVE YOU' ten pages after he appeared, lol. And they were so awesome together. And my otp. *sigh* ;)
Louquantumdoll on November 11th, 2009 10:08 pm (UTC)
fangirl spaz much? ^_^ I read the first book which was awesome and made me sad, and the Marvel comics (which were also awesome and very pretty). Someone spoiled the end of the last book for and said when he finished it he wanted to punch someone. Still good new, I love Stephen king. And Twitter, and I really shouldn't!
the female ghost of tom joad: dark tower roland/eddiejanie_tangerine on November 11th, 2009 11:15 pm (UTC)
Ha, that was my first real seriously crazy fannish obsession. Though yeah.. I guess I'm flailing a lot. ;) The first is so good! And the comics are great, even if I still like the books better but hey, first love is the first love. And WHAT? Argh, if someone had spoiled that for me I'd have probably killed them or something. :/
thandiethandie on November 11th, 2009 11:54 pm (UTC)
OK SO, TO THE IMPORTANT THINGS, WHEN ARE YOU WRITING DEAN/CASTIEL FUSION IN THE GUNSLINGER'S 'VERSE? NOW? NOW? HOW ABOUT NOW?

PS: btw, I'm probably one of those rare people that enjoyed the last book, i thought the ending was basically the only thing I could have accepted. Even if yeah, the last three books were way less inspired than the first 4 imo.
the female ghost of tom joad: supernatural dean/cas finale #2janie_tangerine on November 12th, 2009 12:02 am (UTC)
ARGH YOU READ MY MIND, I WANTED TO DO IT BUT I DIDN'T HAVE TIME and I have two fic challenges and three exchanges I must do but I swear that as soon as I can I'm doing that. I need to do Roland!Cas and Eddie!Dean if only because of the name, lol.

Well, I didn't exactly dislike the last book. My issue was mainly with the ending because a) the whole Crimson King was WTF imo and b) Susannah getting the happy-sort-of-ending with the non-Eddie pissed me off. Mostly because he had told her he was going to wait for her and.. er. That. *headdesk* But overall I can't say I completely hated it. ;) I can safely say I loved the first half. Though yeah, the last three were def. less inspired.
